Eastern redbud (Cercis canadensis)


Plant Family: Pea (Fabaceae)
Project BudBurst Plant Group: Deciduous Trees and Shrubs

Identification Hints: Eastern redbuds are small trees or large shrubs found throughout the eastern United States. A redbudcan grow up to 30 feet tall. The leaves of the Eastern redbud are distinctly heart-shaped and softlooking. The flowers are very showy and come in various shades of magenta. The flowers emerge before the leaves in the spring. Eastern redbuds are often encountered as landscape plants but also in southernforests as understory plants.

Did you Know? Eastern redbud fruits are bean-shaped flat, green pods, approximately 3.5 inches long, which change to a brown color when mature. The seed pods generally contain 4-10 small, hard brownish colored seeds. In wild populations, you might find Eastern redbud trees to be more numerous on south-facing slopes because they receive more sunlight.

The table below displays all the data that has been submitted to Project BudBurst. By default, the data is sorted by the date on which the phenophase occurred. Clicking the up and down arrows next to each column name allows you to sort on any value. If there have been more than 10 observations submitted, you can choose how many to display at a time using the "Show __ entries" control. You can also page through the data using the previous and next buttons at the bottom right of the table.

The Search box allows you to search all of the data. Searching by date, species, phenophase, etc. is easy—just start typing and the table will immediately change to contain only observations that contain your search phrase. Do you want to see only 2012 observations? Just type "2012" in the search box. Only want to see maples? Enter "Acer." You can combine searches, too! Searching for "acer 2012" will narrow your results to only the maples that were observed in 2012 (assuming that any observations exist, of course).

Once you have your results in the order desired, you can use any of the buttons above the search box to copy the results to the clipboard; save them as a text, or spreadsheet; or even print them from your browser!
